I got exactly the same e-mail - but I've never used or registered for Livestream as far as I can remember.

I thought it was a phishing scam, so just ignored it, but looking at various news websites it looks like it might be legit.

I started this thread because many of us joined LiveStream to watch live Festool Connect in the USA. Like many, I have not used it since - hadn't given it a second thought in fact, until now! [eek]
